Bail Kolhu Kachchi Ghani Mustard Oil is the flagship brand of B.L. Agro Oils Ltd. A 'Grade A' Mustard Oil with a unique taste and pungency, it enjoys a tremendous popularity in the northern parts of India and is the favourite Kachchi Ghani Mustard Oil among its vast customer base.
As a category, Mustard Oil is consumed in almost every Indian household although in variable quantity. Kachchi Ghani Mustard Oil is perhaps the healthiest edible oil and one of the best cooking oils, due to its favourable composition.
What is Kachchi Ghani – Its properties and benefits Kachchi Ghani refers to cold press extraction process of mustard oil. In the ghani crushing of mustard seeds about 6% of water is added. This is because, apart from achieving oil expulsion, water, through the agency of the enzyme myrosinase, brings about hydrolysis of various glucosinolate. Slow grinding and frictional heat development release a maximum of pungent isothio cyanates (essential oil) which enter the oil to give it a sharp taste and pungent flavor that is greatly relished along the Indo-Gangatic plain.
The key property of kachchi ghani mustard oil is its essential oil content (0.25-0.35%) which acts as preservative. Essential oils are effective anti fungal. They destroy micotoxin producing moulds. They also exhibit antibacterial and anti-carcinogenic activity.
The second most important property and benefit of kachchi ghani mustard oil is that it retains natural micronutrients and antioxidants present in mustard seed to the maximum extent.
One another good oil considered is olive oil as it contains maximum amount of monounsaturated fatty acid, oleic acid 71% but at the same time it is deprived of Omega 3 fatty acid. Therefore, to make olive oil also balanced healthy oil it has got to be blended with mustard oil. This blend will be wonderful.
Rice Bran oil is very healthy oil but it too is deficient in Omega 3 fatty acid. Moreover, the extra heavy content of Rice Bran oil will also help mustard oil to be more stable toward oxidation. Therefore, we plan to have or blend of the two as well.
As the mustard oil is rich oil Omega 3 fatty acid (an essential fatty acid, which human body cannot synthesize) and very high in antioxidants content, it is prudent to blend it with the ones those are deficient in it. One such oil is Soya oil which is least stable and very low in Omega 3 fatty acid.
The oil which has the maximum amount of Omega 3 fatty acid is flaxseed oil but because of seed high content of Omega 3 fatty acid is stability is very poor. Therefore, to get it stabilized so that can deliver its maximum benefit its blend with Rice Bran oil will help consumer to take in adequate amount of Omega 3 fatty acid.
